World Heart Day 2021: USE ❤️ TO CONNECT
For the 520 million people living with cardiovascular disease (CVD), COVID-19 has been heartbreaking. They have been more at risk of developing severe forms of the virus, and many have been afraid to attend routine and emergency appointments, and have become isolated from friends and family.
This healthcare crisis has highlighted an urgent need to find different and innovative ways to connect people to heart health, particularly in low-resource settings and communities. Harnessing the power of digital health to improve awareness, prevention and management of CVD globally is the goal for Word Heart Day 2021.
